    great easy trail . took the dogs. goes through a lot of expensive looking back yards.

    a good snowshoe trail (jan21) we only did half because it was relativly cold and I was worried about the pups feet (he was probably doing better than I was

    a good portion of the trail is paved road on the one side, but otherwise it was a lovely, not terribly trafficked trail on the 4th of July weekend.

    of course, amazing trail. there's two entry points, one on either side of the restrooms. I highly recommend the entire loop, though it was definitely more like 14 miles than 10.6. If you're aiming for a shorter distance definitely do the right hand (east) side of the loop. also the waterfall is on that side and was quite nice, but also the trail, albeit I was going back down, seemed easier. definitely the final third of the trail it the hardest but you probably knew that going in. fabulous and challenging hike, great views through the whole loops and trail. parking is tricky later in the day. I attempted going three weekends ago at 11am and the lot was over full. I arrived at 7:30am today (sat, Sept 30th) and the lot was empty.

    I've done this one twice now, lovely hike. nice reward. when the water was higher (November vs. august) it was trickier to get across the creek to the waterfall at the end. you have to walk over some logs.

    these were very generous ratings.... yes there was beautiful scenery (Oct 23) but the trail ended very anticlimacticly by butting up with another trail at a particularly drab location. I'd probably try to incorporate it into a loop next time.

    this trail was a bit challenging at times but Absolutly doable. a few spots were steep but the challenge is mostly in endurance/distance. Absolutly gorgeous views through the whole loop. I went mid October and while there was some color change I am excited to try this gorgeous trail again in the spring!

    so it was hard.... but early on when the trail forked and I went left instead of right and it took us straight up onto an incredibly challenging hike. fantastic views though. then when we met back up with the trail some lovely drunks were shooting their guns in our specific direction. when we got back on the normal trail it was significantly easier but still quite steep in spots, so be careful.

    rather boring, hot, no shade. the creek is nice but your barely next to it. skip this and drive to the upper trails instead. this trail connects to the upper and that's where it starts getting pretty.
